A Universal truth
“It is a truth universally acknowledged that when one part of your life starts going okay, another falls spectacularly to pieces.”
― Helen Fielding, Bridget Jones’s Diary
I love Bridget Jones’s Diary. So much of what she says and does, resonates with me as I am certain it does with you too. One thing I really love about Bridget Jones is that, for all her faults, she is ALWAYS herself.
I also have a universal truth:
If you try to change who you are to suit what others think you should be, you will lose your inner happiness.
I think it must be hard when, really, you are a wonderful person but because you always want to please everyone, you find yourself constantly trying to change who you are to suit them. And that can make you sad inside and angry on the outside. When you are who you are, you could probably be the happiest person alive!
Sound familiar? I’ll bet you are either sitting there thinking, ‘That’s me!’ or ‘Hey, I know someone like that!’
So today’s lesson: be who you are and anyone who doesn’t like it, well, they know what they can do…
And if you aren’t that type of person but know someone who is, especially if the person is still young, perhaps try to help them realise that it’s actually okay for them to be who they really are. They may even thank you one day 🙂
